Northwestern has put together a dramatic and incredible season, but the Wildcats will have their hands full against Ohio State.

After a 3-9 season in 2019, few picked Northwestern to have a strong year in 2020. But a veteran defense and the arrival of transfer QB Peyton Ramsey made all the difference.

If not for an unexpected loss to Michigan State, Pat Fitzgerald’s squad would potentially be playing for a trip to the College Football Playoff. Even with that loss, Northwestern is still 6-1 and playing for a berth to the Rose Bowl.

On Sunday evening, Fitzgerald met with the media to discuss the B1G Championship Game set for next Saturday. (Also be sure to check out what Ohio State head coach Ryan Day had to say.)

Here are the highlights from Fitz:

Next Saturday’s kickoff for the B1G Championship Game is set for 12 pm EST on FOX. Who do you have claiming the conference crown this season?
